Red Cups are symbolic to the Texas drank culture. As a former Texas resident, I grasp the concept of “drank in my cup, man hold up”. So no surprise here when artist S. Fresh took the concept on his latest mix-tape “Red Cups and After Partys” … While pushing his latest single “Like Me” the rapper, is steadily working on other videos and his GLM brand.
Hosting parties, as well as doing shows has kept the rapper busy. However, he has stil had time to cultivate a fourth quarter press run that would make a veteran rapper nervous. From Shreeveport to Houston, Atlanta to Dallas. The rapper is definitely making his presence known.
Hey, I just wanted to keep you updated with one of the most humble, yet business minded rappers I know. Make sure you get his new mixtape Campaign. With him focusing on his career, yet steadily maintaining to do all his good works, I wonder when does he sleep. With the wave of internet taking over as the main music source, I’m sure Trae hasn’t even noticed he was banned from Clear Channel. I surely haven’t, he is always working. Make sure you cop the new mixtape and dowwnload his app on iTUNES.
My interview with Trae at 2 Chainz concert…
Trae the Truth ft Lil Duval, No lie
Thugged Out, also Known as Mutt and Jeff has some very exciting things heading your way this year in 2012. A part of DIrty Game Reocrds, the rap duo who are twin brothers have benn making waves since 2009.
As the featured artists of the week, the two have been featured in XXL and Source magaine… Check Out their song Swagged Out, I worked out to it this morning!
It’s the year of the Katy Perry. MTV VMA hit her with 9 nominations, of which she deserves. She has had one of the hottest albums this year so she greatly deserves such a honor.
Not to be confused, Adele came in with 7 nominations. The British singer is up for a major category, Video of the Year.
Kanye falls in right next to Adele with his 7 nominations. He just released a new song with Jay-Z called Otis.
Click below and give it a listen. I love it personally can’t wait for them to release Watch the Throne.
When people often compare female rappers to Nicki Minaj. Most comparisons are based on their look, or their excessive attempts to sound like here. Here I give you Guyana, the Miami rapper has great bars and a wonderful voice.
In this cover of Marvins Room (yeah I know it’s been a million) she displays real life raw talent. NFL player Bryant Mckinnie has BMajor music, which the rapper is signed to. If you have ever been the victim of a chick harassing your man, her version of Marvins Room is relatable.
After much anticipation, Big Sean released “Finally famous ” and the album has been recieving rave riews. When I ran into him at 97.9 The Beat, in Dallas he had no CD for me to review.. LOL Or was that a ploy for me to go out and buy it. Either way the rapper, who was smaller than I thought he was. Had a great personality and was willing to take pictures and do interviews. A lot of rappers, are so disconnected from the fact that being personable will attract loyal fans. Oh, shot out to Beat personality Tenay for hooking that up. You can follow her on Twitter and find the times that she is on the air.
The album was executive produced by Kanye West and NO I.D. It has features from Lupe Fiasco, Chris Brown, Pusha T and more… I will say I personally like “I Do It” and “Marvin Gaye and Chardonnay” He was in Dallas this past weekend opening for Wiz Khalifa at the Verizon Wireless Center. …He’s pictured below with my Friend Ashley at the Beat…
Reminding me of the late 90′s R&B group Zhane, Beyonce on her fourth leaked track brings you back to the basics. Continuing with her more adult and feel good music, like other songs like “1+1″ and “Best Thing I Never Had”. The track produced by Kanye and Consequence, features an opening liner by Kanye. Of course, rapper Andre 3000 serves his eloquent and sexy rap style to put the cherry on top.
I was speaking with a friend of mine the other day, it’s Like Beyonce is trying to slowly but surely introduce you into her new sound of music. As almost as to confuse you, she has released four tracks that to me, don’t quite go together but somehow belong. This mature, and sensual style she is delivering is setting the tone for King Bey.
I might be young, but I’m ready/To give you all my love/I told my girls you can get it
Yes BEY work HUNNI!
While I love Beyonce, I do NOT stan for her. So, this is why I am on the late train to Paris on hearing this great song. I actually was on YouTube looking for something to yap about when I saw this. Of course she looked great, would you expect anything else? This song, is a very beautiful piece in my opinion and it gives you and old soul sound. I could hear Aretha Franklin, Roberta Flack and Marvin Gaye all through this song.
Just the other day I had asked on Twitter, What happened to all the smooth R&B. I’m glad to hear that Beyonce had my answer. You can usually rely on her to provide one of those sensual, heartfelt ballads on her album.Hers is video from the performance.
“When the WORLD”S at WAR, let our LOVE HEAL us all”
With a musical philosophy, if you don’t grind you wont shine. No wonder the Ohio native, now living in Dallas has made a name for his self. With so many rappers and styles from Dallas emitting here are his own words describing his sound in such a saturated industry.
“I think I have my own lane in terms of the Dallas music scene. The music speaks for its self. I don’t make dance songs but I never knock the ones that do because music is music. The dance records go hard in the club. We have a lot of hot records in Dallas but not many hot albums. I want to be that Artist out of Dallas that you see on the Cypher on the BET Awards. When they do those cyphers, you see a Miami rapper like Ace Hood, you see a New York rapper like Juelz Santana, you see a Cali rapper like Tyga but you don’t see a Dallas rapper… yet. I can hold my own in that arena. Shout out to all the upcoming Artists, especially the Triple D Artists. Its’ a lot of talent in this city.”
In the near future he is set to realease a mixtape, Dirth South Armageddon Vol.17 as well as his own solo venture On My Own
Take a listen to his newest song currently getting radio spins… Close to you…
